    • The face value of Super Bowl XLVII tickets was $1,250, $950, $850 and $650.

    • San Francisco was designated the home team for Super Bowl XLVII. They wore scarlet jerseys and 49ers gold pants while Baltimore wore white jerseys and black pants.

    • The San Francisco 49ers were 4 point favorites.

    • For the first time in Super Bowl history, the coaches of the two teams were related. Baltimore coach John Harbaugh is the older brother of San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh. As a result, the game was nicknamed the Harbaugh Bowl. The Harbaughs were also the first brothers to coach against each other in NFL history when the two teams met on Thanksgiving Day in 2011 in Baltimore. The Ravens won that game 16-6.

    • Jacoby Jones' 108 yard kickoff return to open the second half is the longest play not only in Super Bowl history, but ties the longest play in NFL history as well.

    • With 13:22 remaining in the third quarter, half the stadium lost power. The outage, which also initially silenced Jim Nantz and Phil Simms, lasted 34 minutes. CBS first used sideline reporters Steve Tasker and Solomon Wilcots to lead the telecast followed by the studio crew minus Boomer Esiason. Tracey Wolfson also provided a status report from the sideline.

    • San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick's 15-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter was the longest TD run by a quarterback in Super Bowl history.

  • Quotes

    • San Francisco Offensive Tackle Joe Staley: Five yards short, all the work we did in the offseason, the whole entire season, everything came down to five yards and we weren't able to get it done.

    • Baltimore Quarterback and Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco: I think it is fitting that we won that way. We are a tough, blue-collar city and that's the way our games kind of come down. We were up 28-6 and I'm sure a lot of people were nervous but were kind of like, 'This one might be pretty easy.' And the next thing you know, the Niners get right back into it and play great football and we had to grind it out.

    • Baltimore Linebacker Ray Lewis: It's no greater way, as a champ, to go out on your last ride with the men that I went out with, with my teammates. And you looked around this stadium and Baltimore! Baltimore! We coming home, baby! We did it!
      Baltimore Linebacker Ray Lewis: It's simple: when God is for you, who can be against you?

    • Baltimore Coach John Harbaugh: How could it be any other way? It's never pretty. It's never perfect. But it's us. It was us today.
      (on his team's goal-line stand that sealed the victory)
      Baltimore Coach John Harbaugh: I think it speaks to our resolve, speaks to our determination, speaks to our mental toughness. That is what wins and loses games.
